Satusfactory product, nothing amazing

Monday, 8 February 2016

I recently got the Bourjois Rouge Aqua Laque in the shade 05..

The product is packaged neatly in a rectangular tube with a doe-foot applicator. It is around the same size as a regular lipstick. It opens quite easily with a twisting motion, like a bottle cap.

This has a very strong almost chemical smell which lasts for about half an hour. On my lips it felt amazing- smooth and very comfortable.

I was very happy with how this completed my makeup look. However, i was quite disappointed to notice that it doesnt last very long on the lips. It sadly rubbed off onto everything i ate and drank until there was absolutely nothing left on my lips.

I used this for about 5 days straight just to test the durability and in that time, i received compliments on the colour for about the first 20 minutes of it being on my lips and thereafter it was completely faded, almost as if nothing was on at all. Personally, this product didnt work for me.

I would recommend it if you have dry lips as it would moisturize your lips while it is on as it is a very wet formula.

I like the finish of this product but the staying power is very weak.

Overall, the product was satisfactory and i probably would not purchase if it runs out.
